Some of those need to be looked at more closely...

A few general points / questions:
1) No credible league allows you to trade picks three years in advance. We didn't make that explicit, but I would have thought people would know better.

2) I've never seen "protected" draft picks, but I like the idea. That's fine, I think, but we will need a way to keep track of it, and I think we need to limit the number of ways that they can be protected, simply to keep Chuck from a massive headache.

Now, for specifics:

No issues here, really. I can see the logic and value for both teams.

J. Woywitka is 76 overall. He is not a simple throw-in for contract purposes. Including him violates both the 4 roster player and 6 asset rule. Maybe use Scott Ford (AHL D-TGH) instead. Otherwise, I think this is a fine deal that makes some sense. Shatty is the best player, but Blum is a decent replacement, and STL picks up some really good assets for the down-grade.

I thought the prospect thing was supposed to be one-for-one, but Chuck said above it could be 2-for-1. It doesn't say either explicitly in the league rules. The intent was to give people the option to re-balance their prospect pools with a simply swap. I think one-for-one does that more effectively, but we need to clarify things here.

I'm not even sure if it counts as "Day 1," since games aren't playable yet.

But I fully agree: this isn't a promising start to league looking to stay sustainable and balanced long-term.
